One of America’s favourite writers scores a touchdown in this tender, sweet and hilarious comedy.
Former sports star Bobby Denton has agreed to lend his fame and his name to a movie. But when he doesn’t show up the film company sends straight-laced Gracie Snow to bring him to the set with surprising results.
Despite his dazzling good looks and killer charm, Bobby has reservations about being a movie star – and no plans to cooperate with anyone from the studio, let alone shy little Gracie. But though she comes across as a wallflower, Bobby soon discovers Gracie is really a steel magnolia and the more time he spends in her company the more he finds himself drawn to this plain Jane with a heart of gold . . .
